Publication date: Available online 14 November 2019Source: Nutrition, Metabolism and Cardiovascular DiseasesAuthor(s): Zhengbao Zhu, Aili Wang, Daoxia Guo, Xiaoqing Bu, Tan Xu, Chongke Zhong, Yanbo Peng, Tian Xu, Hao Peng, Jing Chen, Zhong Ju, Deqin Geng, Jiang He, Yonghong ZhangBackground and AimsHigh serum hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) levels increase the risk of ischemic stroke and are probably associated with outcomes after ischemic stroke. However, it remains unclear whether the association between HGF and ischemic stroke prognosis is modified by blood lipid status.Methods and ResultsData were derived from the CATIS ...

The NHLBI DIR is hosting the Coronary CT Angiography (CTA) Summit on Thursday, November 14th. The CTA Summit will focus on discussions around novel vascular disease outcomes derived from coronary CT angiography and effect of interventions on these vascular disease outcomes. By improving earlier detection of atherosclerosis, millions of lives can be improved from the burdens of heart disease and stroke, which directly aligns with the NIH mission “ to seek knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability. ...

Conclusion: The clinical risk scores that currently exist for predicting short-term and long-term risk of recurrent cerebral ischemia are limited in their performance and clinical utilities. There is a need for a better predictive tool which can overcome the limitations of current predictive models. Application of machine learning methods in combination with electronic health records may provide platform for development of new-generation predictive tools.

In this study 66 clinically mildly affected patients aged 54-87 years without a history of dementia underwent extensive neuropsychological assessment after first ever ischemic stroke and again 6 months after the event (follow-up assessment). Demographic, clinical and paraclinical parameters were assessed as potential predictors for long-term cognitive outcome. RESULTS: At the group level significant performance improvements were found for most of the neurocognitive domains at the follow-up assessment. The greatest cognitive improvement was found in visuospatial processing. Immediately after stroke 54.5% of p...

Conclusions: The use of apps put increased responsibility on the person and had the possibility to make them more involved in their own care. The use of an app can facilitate a healthy lifestyle and help to monitor disease-specific symptoms. In order to be able to use apps for communication with the health care sector legislation and safety issues need to be considered.Implications for rehabilitationApps can be used for self-management if they are safe and can be trusted.People with neurological disabilities want to be involved in their healthcare and needs to be addressed by health care professionals.The use of apps grasp...
